Is that an OTM logo you see before your eyes? No – we’re talking Mods and Rockers!

We’ve got two more beautiful/quirky estate agents’ offices this morning, including one for movie fans – and followers of OnTheMarket.

Leigh Ryan, manager of Palms Properties, sent us this image of their offices on Palm Drive on Brighton Marina.

Alive with bright colours, it features a mural representing all that Brighton is best known for, including references to the city’s role in classic British movies like Brighton Rock and Quadrophenia.

Keen eyes will spot what appears to the OnTheMarket logo featured big in the mural. However, the firm does not list at OTM. Puzzled, we asked for more information.

In fact, it isn’t anything to do with today’s challenger portal and is simply a coincidence.

This is the logo used by the Mods, who were part of Brighton’s history, when teenage Mods and Rockers used to roll up respectively on their scooters and motorbikes on bank holidays for seaside riots: as in the battle of Brighton Beach, May 1964, when deck-chairs were burned, terrified holiday-makers ran for safety, and everyone wondered what the world was coming to.

Meanwhile, Chris Harman, CEO and creative director of Bournemouth-based design firm Parent, has sent us a photo of Charles Powell’s offices near Romsey in Hampshire:
